The claimant farming company appealed against reduction of its claim for payment under the single farm scheme after an employee had been convicted of an offence under the 1981 Act.
Held: The claim succeeded. The ability to reduce the payment arose only where the act of non-compliance was ‘directly attributable’ to the person applying for the payment.
